I completely understand your interest in knowing where. But having been through all 15 of these Unrally events, let me explain a little about what the organizers and the venue go through.

Everyone wants to book as soon as they know they can go. But that would mean the venue would have to handle our calls for the next 10 months. And not only do they have 10 months of daily business to conduct prior to our event, but there are literally dozens of other groups (church groups, nature groups, wedding groups, school reunion groups, etc.) that will have events there between now and UnRally16. Therefore, the venue has given the Un Organizers a "registration window," usually several weeks if not a couple of months wide, during which they will take the actual reservations for our group. This usually takes place in the spring for an event on the dates that have been announced. They use these Registration Windows with all group events. This way, they're only juggling a couple of group events simultaneously, rather than a year's worth. As you can see, announcing the actual location would, even with the best of intentions, create an early and long-lasting burden on the venue, and venues have always been very cordial and receptive to us.

If you're looking for a general location, since the eastern UnRally can be anywhere in the eastern half of the U.S., and can be from the Atlantic ocean to the middle of Kansas and from the top of New England down to the Florida Keys, I'm sure a general location will be provided so people can determine whether it's a one-day ride or a two-day ride. But as to the specific hotel/motel/lodge, by agreement of both parties, that's going to have to wait until the Registration Window opens or until the Un Organizers, who've handled some tricky negotiations, deem it proper and beneficial to the event to announce it.

Thanks for understanding.

Makes for a tight riding schedule. The Un is just over a week before the RA rally in Michigan and just over 2 weeks before the MOA rally in Salt Lake City.
